The other day…

I was at home sick from work and I watched “Lost in Translation” again, considering how I own it. And I just have to say, if you don’t like that movie – you’re insane. Except for a couple scenes, it’s pure genius all the way through. Slow, yes. But a character study with the concurrent themes of being lost in life and being lost in a foreign country, as if to say, “Hey, these relationships, they’re like visiting a foreign country where everyone’s speaking a different language; we lose so much meaning crossing over.” Excellent. And beautiful.

  1. You’re right. Lost in Translation is one of my favorites as well, and you’ve expressed the reasons well. The first time I watched it, it was breathtaking. The second time, almost as good… I suppose I should watch it a third before too long. 🙂
